McBride earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Arcadia University, Glenside, PA.


For years Constance McBride studied the human form through drawing, but once she began exploring it three-dimensionally with clay, she became hooked. McBride immediately fell for this tactile medium, used to create things of beauty and function for thousands of years. As she discovered a new way to communicate, her work came alive. Clay soon became the primary focus of her practice, and she continues to be intrigued by it and all its properties. McBride hand builds her pieces and often incorporate written words, bits of nature and found objects dipped in clay slip, to illuminate a specific narrative.
